How strong are these axles compared to my stock D30/D44 TJ axles?
Should be stronger
How wide are these axles? Like my stock TJ axles?
If anything wider
Does my rear D44 ARB locker fit in these old D44 axles?
What kind of brakes are on these axles?
most likey disc front drum rear
Does my ols steering linkage fit?
Did the Cherokee Chief have leaf springs on both axles or front coils?
Are there some kits to convert these axles for a TJ with coils?
rubicon express or dynatrac
Make sure front diff has correct drop and rear is centered vs offto one side
